The King of Bhutan, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, features in the February calendar of Yellow Bhutan in a drawing by an unknown artist. His Majesty will celebrate his 39th birthday later this month.
With this month’s calendar, Yellow Bhutan stated:
In the Kingdom of Bhutan adorned with cypress trees,
The Protector who reigns over the realm of spiritual and secular traditions,
He is the King of Bhutan, the precious sovereign.
May His being remain unchanging, and the Kingdom prosper,
May the teachings of the Enlightened One flourish,
May the sun of peace and happiness shine over all people.
They added, “Our February Calendar is dedicated to the Birth Anniversary of His Majesty The King, on the 21st of February, with our deepest respects, love, and prayers.”
The free downloadable calendars are released each month by Yellow Bhutan featuring the Gregorian calendar and Bhutanese Lunar calendar. Public holidays in Bhutan are also included on the calendars.
Calendars for tablets, phones, and computers are all available for both PC and Macs.

Their Majesties King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema shared the Yellow Bhutan post on their official Facebook pages, as well. Both utilise their social media accounts to keep the public informed about their royal engagements. You can follow the King, here and the Queen, here.
Members of the Bhutanese Royal Family have appeared several times on these calendars. Last month, the King and his two-year-old son, Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck were on the January calendar in a drawing by artist Ugyen Dorji.
Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck will celebrate his third birthday on 5 February.
King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck ascended the throne after his father’s abdication on 9 December 2006. His coronation took place almost two years later on 6 November 2008.
